1. A method for configuring a sensor tag, comprising:
printing one or more antennas configured to operate in or above a high frequency (HF) band on a flexible substrate layer using a conductive ink;
depositing one or more sensors on the flexible substrate layer, wherein at least one of the one or more sensors is deposited to make electric contact with at least one of the one or more antennas; and
applying a coating layer over the one or more sensors;
wherein the flexible substrate layer comprises a layer over a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) layer.
